County of Santa Clara employees pledge more than $800k - Combined Giving Campaign
A big shout out to County of Santa Clara employees for pledging more than $800,000 to support the County’s 2016 Combined Giving Campaign! The pledges will support hundreds of charities in the community during the 2017 calendar year.
The collaborative fundraising effort, launched in 1973, gives employees from various County departments and agencies the opportunity to contribute to charitable causes, by pledging to support nonprofit organizations through bi-weekly payroll deductions or one-time contributions.
The Board of Supervisors recognized employees' campaign efforts through their departments this month. Since 1995, the Combined Giving Campaign has collected more than $13 million on behalf of hundreds of charities focused on health and human services, environmental and educational programs. More
